It was a natural progression to FPV, using a monitor, from playing video games, PC games and flight sims. I was used to using my hands to manipulate what's on the screen. Goggles are the same but smaller LCD's that are close to your eyes for that up close TV experience. I do use the goggles on small stuff like mini quads and foamies, but mainly use the monitor. The goggles will fog up sometimes, for me, which doesn't help. I just like the relaxing feel of sitting very comfortably and flying. Others can watch, very easy to see LOS when closer, no need to lift the goggles and try to see your plane. The goggles do have the advantage of easy portability but an external rx is needed for longer flights. For 5 minute mini quad flights, the goggles work. If I fly fixed wing for 40 minutes, that's too long on my head
You can always get a $100 wally special and use a sun shade. Get a set of goggles for the other times. I do have a set of Dom V1's for sale, $225 shipped. Comes with a NIP battery, all cables but no internal rx module. Half price new. If you are far sighted, you may need the diopter lens for them.
